Wow, thats great! Thank you!
I've now had a look at the code... Could you give a hint to the uninitiated as to why you need to use 1048 bit conversion for the Divx5/x264 calculations? I mean, obviously its correct because its giving me the correct results, but i never knew that. Is this some kind of standard that i didn't know about? Does it depend on the container format? *curious*
Maybe you have a website that could enlighten me?
Nontheless, thanks again for your quick response! *happy again*

Hi again Deathcrow,
The equasion is to be honest a very near rounded up guess, I originally came up with 1052, but that was too high.
The issue with codecs is that they don't always use a uniform measure of kilobytes or megabytes eg:
1x1024bytes should equal 1kb, but some codecs use 1x1000bytes.
Modern codecs usually work backwards from mb, so the kilobyte rate should be 1/1024, but is often measured as 1/1000, this means that bitrates like 1.5mb would simply become 1500000bytes rather than 1.5x1024x1024bytes.
So, to sum it up, the modern codec calculation makes up for missing bytes.
I know that probably makes little sense, but it was a short way to calculate to a close figure.
